Now since nude lips are my safe lip color and go with every last one of my looks, I’ve been experimenting lately with new products. Ive noticed that I fell into sort of a routine of using the same things all of time and I wanted to switch up the majority of my routines to see what else is out there.

Here are the products that I use:

The Best Red Lipsticks for Everyone… Seriously

Optimized-red lips post cover

As I’ve written before, red lips are something that I think everyone should at least try once. There are a couple of different ways that you can go about achieving this whether it being a more classic red lip with a matching red lip liner, or a more modern ombre effect red lip with a darker lip liner.

If you would like to achieve any kind of red lip, here are a few options for you to choose from. There is everything from more orange-reds, to blue toned reds, and multiple finishes from mattes, to creams and for many different price ranges including drugstore and high end options. I hope you can find your perfect red lip!

A Quick Guide to MAC Lipstick Finishes

The famous MAC Cosmetics is the very first company that I was introduced to when it came to non-drugstore cosmetics companies. They have some of the better products on the market and their products have been worn by celebrities, makeup artists, and the everyday lady alike. When a new trend is trending, I have noticed that there is always a way it can be done with MAC products. MAC was started in Toronto, Canada in 1985 and everything after that was complete history. This company has multiple products and could essentially be the only brand in your collection because they have everything from skincare and lashes to foundations and concealers. They have collaborated with other brands such and Hello Kitty, Nasty Gal and The Simpson’s to pop sensations such as Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Marilyn Monroe. Another admirable part of MAC Cosmetics is their Viva Glam lipstick line, introduced in 1994, in which they donate all of the proceeds from Viva Glam lipsticks to the MAC AIDS Funds is donated “to support men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS.” There have been many celebrities with their own limited edition Viva Glam lipsticks such as Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and sometime this year Miley Cyrus.

NYX Eyebrow Gel Review

Earlier this year I purchased the NYX Eyebrow Gel in Espresso fro $6.99 from the NYX Cosmetics website. This comes with 10 mL, or .034 fl. oz. of product.

I ordered this online, so I was concerned about the shade that would be most appropriate for me. I was worried that the color would be off in comparison to my natural brow color, however it matched perfectly.

My Current Eyebrow Routine

Brows are the new black

Hey everybody!

Today I am going to be taking you guys step-by-step through my current eyebrow routine. The very first thing I started to learn makeup-wise was about eyebrows from JJ of BeautybyJJ. I then started tailoring it to my specific desires. I’ve played with everything from application styles and tools to shapes and colors and anything in between. I really like how I’m doing them and I thought I would share it with you all!

Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Single in Panther Review

I was in my local drugstore trying to grab a heating pad for this extremely cold weather that we’ve been having here in Georgia, and I also knew I needed a new matte, black eyeshadow so I looked for that as well. I came across a display of Wet N Wild products and Panther was the very last color that they had available. It was the last of its kind and so of course that means that we’re supposed to be together. I measure the quality of an eyeshadow with the entire quality of the brand itself. That’s just my personal opinion, if an eyeshadow from a brand is unsatisfactory, then there’s not really much else that I can expect from the company. Sometimes, I can be wrong about this, but it all boils down to the little things.
